Today’s young people face significant challenges in the face of the 4th Industrial Revolution. Moreover, today’s young social innovators, particularly agricultural entrepreneurs, face growing pressure to both do well and do good. How can we retool education to prepare them with the lifelong skills to navigate and thrive in an uncertain future? How do we help them create their own opportunities to create a better livelihood? How can we create market-based ecosystems that benefit all stakeholders? How do we build an inclusive, self-sustaining economic foundation to create jobs, stimulate entrepreneurship and spur investment?

The lecture by Bian Li will address the above topics as she shares her expertise, insight and lessons learned in empowering the next generation of young innovators and building ecosystems around the world and in India.
